Default Upgrading from 5770 to...?

Looking for an upgrade, and quite frankly, I'm kind of stumped. Can you guys help me out? I'm starting to feel the age of my system pretty bad.

In the order of upgrades, I'm a bit torn on which route I can do this in. My current rig is in my signature, so I'll be plopping ~$250 each for upgrades when I can.
  1. VideoCard
  2. CPU
  3. Monitor (will upgrade to a better monitor soon.)

I've been eyeing the GTX 560 ti as an upgrade for a bit now. I know it'll out perform my current 5770, but I'm not sure if I should just get a CPU upgrade first. If I get a CPU, I need to get a new mobo since it doesn't support the Bulldozer or suck it up and get a cheaper X6 CPU for now.

So many damn choices.
